Travelling by train this weekend?
If your plans include a trip to Dublin, it might be a good idea to reschedule; Iarnród Éireann has reminded rail customers that services on a number of routes face significant disruption this weekend, Saturday, September 24th and Sunday, September 25th.
Due to a series of track and signalling works taking place, the line between Portarlington and Limerick Junction is closed.
“All services between Dublin and Cork, Kerry and Limerick will see partial or full bus transfers, and to a revised schedule, with other services also affected.” said a spokesperson for Irish Rail.
Here’s what you need to know before you go:
- Services between Cork and Dublin Heuston will operate between Cork and Limerick Junction only, in both directions, and to a limited timetable. However, customers should note that for those travelling between Cork and Dublin Heuston, a bus transfer will be provided for the full journey.
- Direct services between Limerick and Dublin Heuston will be replaced by bus transfer for the full journey in both directions, and operate to a limited timetable. Journeys between Limerick and Dublin Heuston, involving a change at Limerick Junction, will have bus transfers between Limerick Junction and Heuston, and operate to a limited timetable, in both directions.
- Services between Tralee and Dublin Heuston will involve bus transfers between Limerick Junction and Heuston, in both directions. Services between Tralee and Mallow, and between Tralee and Cork, will operate as normal, with some minor time changes.
- Commuter services between Portlaoise and Dublin Heuston will involve bus transfers between Portlaoise and Portarlington in both directions.
Customers are advised to check times before travel, with full details at irishrail.ie and at the Iarnród Éireann app.
